PETALING JAYA: The police and Armed Forces are joining forces to wage war against crime in a joint patrol' pilot programme at selected neighbourhoods around the country.
The programme, which was launched Saturday at Kota Damansara and Sungai Buloh, would see six army personnel joining ranks with policemen from each area to conduct collaborative patrols in the residential neighbourhoods in their respective areas.
Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Arjunaidi Mohamed said the programme was another step by the police and Government to combat crime in the country.
“The joint teams would conduct their patrols on police MPVs, motorcycles and also on foot. We hope to further expand this programme to all other parts of Petaling Jaya as soon as possible,” he said after launching the programme at Kota Damansara police station Saturday.
In JOHOR BARU, the police and army personnel will also guard residents in Setia Indah.
Johor Baru (South) OCPD Asst Comm Zainuddin Yaacob said that incorporation of army personnel into patrol duties with the police was a culmination of the Prime Minister's National Blue Ocean Strategy in combating crime.
“Under the strategy, we aim to utilise all available resources to its best potential and a collaborative effort between the police and army is one way to increase security in the country,” he said during the launch of the first police and army collaborative at the Setia Indah police station here Saturday.
Zainuddin said that eight army personnel would be incorporated into the initial 16-member team, who will be on duty from 9am to 5pm.
Each team would consist of two policemen and one-army personnel, he added.
He said the state police would be looking at creating similar teams for other police stations in Johor, but would depend on the resources available.
Royal Malay Regiment's 10th Battalion commanding officer Lt Kol Hamdan Musa said his men had underwent a special course to familiarise themselves with the police system to enable them to stay in sync during the operation which would benefit the people.
